PRESS RELEASE

Compact Wireless Duo storage, high-performance RT-AC68U 802.11ac router and battery-powered P2B projector unveiled at Computex 2013

Computex Taipei, Taiwan (4 June, 2013) - ASUS today announced the Wireless Duo storage device for simple file sharing via Wi-Fi, the RT-AC68U dual-band 802.11ac router with personal cloud storage support, and the battery-powered P2B portable short-throw projector.

ASUS Wireless Duo - portable wireless storage for smart devices

ASUS Wireless Duo is a compact and portable storage device that takes the hassle out of sharing files between mobile devices. With a built-in 500GB or 1TB hard drive, Wireless Duo can be used as wireless external storage for smartphones and tablets, freeing up valuable internal storage. Music and video can also be streamed from Wireless Duo in a variety of popular formats, extending the entertainment opportunities of handheld devices when away from a PC for long periods.

With support for Android, iOS, and Windows, Wireless Duo also makes it easy to share files with up to five different devices at the same time. The built-in SD card slot provides a one-click card-to-hard drive backup option and gives instant access to photos taken with a digital camera, removing the need to carry multiple - and easy lost - memory cards. Wireless Duo also features USB 3.0 for super-fast file access over a wired connection with compatible devices and a built-in battery for up to six hours of media streaming.

ASUS RT-AC68U - the world's first AC1900 router

The ASUS RT-AC68U is the world's first dual-band 802.11ac router with blisteringly fast combined AC1900 data rates of 1900Mbit/s. 802.11ac is three-times faster than 802.11n, but the RT-AC68U is faster still with a 2.4GHz data rate of 600Mbit/s. This is an incredible 33% faster than ordinary Wi-Fi routers, making the RT-AC68U perfect for taking the strain off congested home networks.

The RT-AC68U also features ASUS AiRadar technology that uses beamforming to focus the Wi-Fi for a stronger connection that's less prone to interference. As a result, the RT-AC68U gives 150% greater coverage than other routers.

The RT-AC68U also includes exclusive ASUS AiCloud technology, with a Router-to-Router Sync feature that makes light work of sharing files without the fuss of managing user access rights and FTP access. A simple invitation allows photos, videos and other files on USB-attached storage to be synchronized automatically to USB-attached storage on other compatible ASUS routers, without the need for a switched-on PC at either end.

ASUS P2B Projector - the battery-powered for unbeatable portability

The ASUS P2B is an ultra-compact portable projector that's battery-powered for complete mobile flexibility. Despite a desktop footprint no larger than an audio CD jewel case, the P2B has a bright 350-lumen output from a long-life LED light source that powers-up in an instant and cools down quickly for packing away. The best-in-class 1.1:1 short throw ratio means the P2B can project a 42-inch diagonal image just one meter away from the projection surface and, with a 1280 x 800 WXGA resolution, even 8-point text is crisp and clear.

The P2B has a D-Sub input and a HDMI/MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) port that allows compatible smartphones and tablets to be used as a projection source, while being simultaneously recharged. Images, videos and common office document formats can also be read directly from USB storage devices and microSD cards, while the built-in speaker removes the need for bulky external speakers. The P2B's lithium ion battery lasts for up to 90 minutes at the maximum 300-lumen brightness setting, but brightness can also be reduced to extend battery life.
